Rio Olympics: All the Way In

In the Individual Time Trial the coach, along with the mechanic follow in the team car behind.  The coach will either use a megaphone, or a two way radio to encourage, chide, or relay split times to the athlete racing as hard as they can.  Anna Van Der Breggen (Netherlands) had her coach pushing her all of the way to the line.  The Dutch woman had already taken the Gold Medal in the Road Race, and now she can add a Bronze Medal in the Individual Time Trial.  Chapeau!

This is a small watercolors and ink painting measuring just 4"x6" and was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from www.richesonart.com.  This painting and all of my Olympics artwork will be available through my artist website at www.greigleach.com.  To purchase this particular painting just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
